D Rex Miller Photographer at work in the field

Photographing nature and traveling to unspoiled natural places . . . those are two of the things I enjoy most.  Conveniently, each very effectively feeds the other.  One could say that I photograph to travel, or that I travel to photograph—either would be a very accurate statement. 

I spent countless hours in my youth wandering the mountains and streams of northwest North Carolina, and it was there that my love of nature and experiencing natural places was born and nurtured. Photography, at least on a serious scale, came much later in life.  After completion of courses through the New York Institute of Photography, time with my cameras and lenses became the primary focus of my time outdoors.   

My work is concentrated on the southern Appalachian Mountains in general and the Blue Ridge  region in particular, but also includes many images from more far flung regions within the US and elsewhere.  In addition to the great personal enjoyment I derive from photographing nature, I hope my photographs inspire others to a greater appreciation of wild or preserved natural places—such as the US National Park system, of which I am a huge fan. 

For me, the quality of human existence would be diminished if we had no undeveloped lands to experience, no wild and free creatures to observe.  As Nancy Newhall expressed it, “Wilderness holds answers to questions man has not yet learned . . . to ask.”  In nature photography, my intent is always to faithfully record and accurately present my subject matter, then share it through the resulting images, in hopes that my photographs will encourage preservation and protection of wilderness and semi-wild areas by providing others the opportunity to view images of nature’s design.

My images are sold in limited editions, and are individually signed and numbered with certificates of authenticity.  Each is professionally printed using archival materials and printing techniques.  In addition to traditional photographic prints, my photographs are available on canvas and metal, or as contemporary “standouts.”
